Multitasking is the ability to use several apps at once. You can even exit out of a phone call on speakerphone, keep talking to the person, and browse the web or check facebook. Your not locked into just doing one thing at a time with Multitasking.

Yes this phone has the ability to set the alarm, by clicking the clock in the menu page. It, also, has a calendar.

Multitasking means that you can do more than 1 task at a time (i.e. read a text or email, while on a telephone call OR play music on Pandora while playing games, emailing, or texting).

This phone does not have a notepad option, but you can download an Android app for that.

Question

If I get Sprint network in my area will it work?

I am thinking about getting this phone. I have read all the reviews and I have fallen in love with this phone already, but I had a HUGE question about some of the reviews stating that the network is bad. I even went to the Sprint website and put in my area code and it said that I had good coverage, is this going to be true even with the ST network?

I did exactly the same thing except I had a Sprint phone for 4 years. I decided to buy this phone and keep my Sprint account open for a while just to make sure the service was good enough to keep. THE SIGNAL WAS EXACTLY THE SAME ON THE OPTIMUS AS ON MY CONTRACT PHONE WITH SPRINT!! I live in a rural area and my Sprint coverage was a little spotty but I was always able to send and receive calls and data. (weak signals and a few dead spots) My StraightTalk coverage is exactly the same. Kept Sprint alive for a week to test it out then ported my number with no problem at all. I absolutely LOVE this phone!! I cut my bill in half and instead of the smallest call package and texting, I have everything!! Try it! You can always get a refund if it doesn't work out.

Don't get confused by the Sprint coverage maps... This phone will ONLY work on Sprint's PRE_PAID towers... not the regular contract towers... Best way to see the coverage area is to go to Virgin Mobiles website and have a look at their maps.. They use the very same Sprint towers but seem to update their maps more often (they will also let you do an address search of coverage) ... I was very hesitant about buying this phone but I'm glad I checked the VM maps which said I had "excellent" coverage at my address... and I do. I get 4 bars inside and always 5 outside...

I also researched before purchasing this phone. Sprint said that I was the best coverage for my area. I now have the phone and it works wonderfully... outside but whenever I am inside my house or at work the bars are very low. The internet is slow and I can't watch utube videos. The most important thing though is I haven't had dropped calls or any issues texting so I'm pretty happy with it.

If you google for coverage maps for sprint, you will find an app that permits entering your home address and work address and look at coverage on a block by block basis. For example, I found out that the house north of mine gets excellent signal strength, and the house south of me gets only fair signal strength (my steet is on a hill that interfers with the signal).

In general, Sprint is strong in major cities (Houston, Dallas, etc.) and on major highways between large cities. Sprint is weak in rural areas away from major cities.

Ask your neighbors and co-workers about their Sprint experiences.

Question

Will the android phone work in locations that other straight talk phones will?

I have an lg straight talk smart phone that works great in my zip code. But it says the android isnt available here? I dont wanna buy it and not be able to use it for some reason. Does it roam off any cell tower or does it have to be sprint?

The only way you would be able to use it would be to go to a place where it is available and activate it with that corresponding zip code. The service will still work where you actually live. But your phone number would most likely be a long distance number from said zip code activation.

All the newest Optimus Q's run off Sprint, which only has good reception in large metropolitian areas, rural areas are spotty to non-existant reception; can still find some older Q's on eBay that run off ATT if you ask around; have heard the new Optimus 2X that's coming out is going to run off Verizon, because of the Sprint problem.

Yes, you can port your existing number by activating through customer service. Also, the number will stay the same from month to month. Even if you miss your renewal date and straighttalk cuts off service and you have to reactivate it, the number will stay the same as long as you only a day or two before you reactivate it.

Yes you can keep your number. I have transferred over 3 numbers to Straight talk. A friend of mine had issues when he tried one number and it had a prior unpaid balance. AT&T will not release a number if the balance is not paid first. However that number was so far past due it had been disconnected.

I'm not quite sure what you are asking...

If you mean can you switch your existing phone number from another carrier and use the same number on this Straight Talk phone? Then usually yes (not always!). You need to call the company to do that when you get the phone.

If you mean will you keep the same phone number from month to month when you have the prepaid service? The answer is yes - as long as you keep up the payments and keep the phone number "active." If you don't pay and put it on a shelf for a few month and then want to reactivate it, you may end up getting a new number.

Actually, as a warning, just don't let the phone sit there for a while. I had a similar experience and they ended up having to send out a new SIM card (because they couldn't reactivate old # and the number is "attached" to the SIM card) and it took an extra 10 days or so to get this all done. That was over a year ago - maybe things have changed since then.

I have actually found an app where you can save text messages to your sd card so you don't have to keep deleting them. It's called SMS Backup and Restore. After you backup the texts to the app, you can then go in and delete the texts from the phone without losing them. Also, some apps can be moved to the card via settings, applications, manage applications then going into each app and if it's allowable, clicking on "move to sd card. Also, you can clear data here.
Hope this helps somewhat.

I wondered too. The samsung is advertised as having 1G of internal memory which my daughter has. I bought the LG for the keypad. I have to keep cleaning out e mail and maps to keep my memory able to load things. I'd guess it is about 300M. The phone has 8 G of sd card but you can't move internal memory downloads from it to the sd card. Thats the only downfall of the phone. Otherwise I like it.

No. You can't increase the internal memory on any device which is why they made this phone where you can add a memory card. You can increase the memory card by buying a larger one. The phone says that it works with up to an 8g memory card but it will actually work with a larger one but it will run your battery down just trying to fill it up.
